Chester Train Shop Punter Choo Choo Chooses 15 Winners And Bags Over £20k

A man in his mid forties has scooped a massive payout after he breezed into the William Hill shop at Chester train station and placed a £3, 15 team football accumulator. The man, who spoke with a Southern accent, told the girl working behind the counter that he was off on holiday on Easter Sunday with some of his winnings leaving it unknown as to whether he lived in Chester or just visiting the city for the day.

From his £3 stake, the lucky punter bagged himself £20,343.96, beating odds of over 6780/1 to land his massive payout.

“It is hard enough to pick one winner so for him to get 15 is absolutely incredible,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “When he collected his winnings on Saturday evening, he told the assistant that he had decided that he was going to go on holiday for a week and mull over what else he was going to spend his winnings on.”

The games that were played over Good Friday and the following Saturday included Celtic who won the SPL title by defeating Kilmarnock 6-0, Chelsea who defeated Wigan with two contentious goals and virtually the last kick of the game and Reading, who moved top of the Championship by beating 10 man Leeds with two goals in the last six minutes of the match.

The shop in the train station has been open for two years and is the first betting shop in Chester that punters get to when they arrive for the yearly race meetings that start in May.

Bromley Man Strikes It Lucky For Second Time!

A Kent man in his fifties was celebrating for the second time in less than a year after beating odds of almost 2000/1 to scoop a massive £38,033.24 from his local William Hill shop in Bromley. It was not the first time that this customer has won big in recent times, having had a 12 fold accumulator late last year that paid out £27,000.

This time around the punter, who wishes to remain anonymous, selected 15 sides from various leagues and competitions around Europe in a £20 football accumulator. Among his selections were sides from the Europa and Champions League, the Dutch second division and the Polish Premier League. Despite having a seemingly varied knowledge of football on the continent, Arsenal (8/15 to defeat Newcastle), Chelsea (to defeat Napoli at 4/6) and Manchester City (2/9 to defeat Sporting Lisbon) were all in his coupon.

“Usually I would have said that this was a once in a lifetime bet but this guy has knocked us for six twice in a year, he is the new guru,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

“Other customers are asking us what he is betting on so they can follow him,” said staff in the shop.

Winning Selections:

Udinese to beat AZ Alkmaar 5/6

Chelsea to beat Napoli 4/6

Hannover to beat Standard 8/13

Wrexham to beat Ebbsfleet 8/13

Nothing Fishy About Grimsby Punter’s £100k Win

A Grimsby based Manchester United fan was celebrating this weekend – and not just because his side managed to maintain their 100% record in the Premier League but because he won over £100,000 from an £8 bet with William Hill. The mystery man, who wishes to remain anonymous, selected 12 sides to win on his football accumulator and all duly obliged. The 37 year old punter who regularly has an accumulator at the weekend, had never hit the jackpot until Saturday and scooped £101,647.97 when Leeds, Crawley, Hearts, Tranmere, Hull, Peterborough, Sheffield Wednesday, Morecambe, Shrewsbury, Macclesfield, Gillingham and Sheffield Utd all won.

“It is incredibly difficult to pick even one winner, so to have 12 sides all come in is quite a feat and one that was priced at over 12,700/1,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “With a haul of over £100,000, he could spend the rest of the season following United home and away.”

Winning bet:

£8 12 fold

7/10 Leeds
4/6 Crawley
3/4 Hearts
21/20 Tranmere

Mystery Man Defies Odds Of 25,000/1 To Scoop Early Christmas Present

A William Hill punter from Swindon has scooped a massive £26,993.96 from just £1. The mystery punter placed an unlikely 20-fold football accumulator online and included teams from all over Europe in his selections. 19 of the games were winners whilst the other game was a postponed game between Lech Poznan and Widzew Lodz.

The punter has overcome odds of over 25000/1 and has taken Hills to the cleaners. His usual bets are football accumulators from around the world including English, European and South American football.

“Anyone who has done an accumulator will know that it is tough enough predicting five teams to win, let alone 20. We are sure that the winter blues will be banished by this bumper payout,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
